Autumn leaves are turning red and gold throughout
New England, The High Holy Days are for us, as
well as the Day of Death (Halloween) is
approaching- and my spiritual mind turns towards
the poignancy of aging as well as death. Maybe
its due to the fact my father passed away at the
end of august and my mom in September. Or
possibly is my personal later season nearing as
well? Who knows? Life is tenuous. Lama Surya Das
says Handle with prayer. This has always
captivated me. I really like to take slow, solo
strolls inside the old cemeteries of New England,
in every time of year examine their
inscriptions, feel my feelings in addition to
intuitions, as well as think about the particular
lives similar to my own in addition to mortality
of my erstwhile neighbors in addition to
eternity, infinity as well as my own finitude.
Dying is definitely the excellent motivator,
galvanizing me straight into mindful, intentional
motion. It will make me think What shall I do
now with this precious, miraculous life Ive been
given? Lets admit it death is among one of
few stuff that links each one of us. We've got to
face it some way, a fact and a challenge that
brings together us all in several ways, both seen
and also unseen. How can we deal with it? And how
should we deal with it, living up to death and
its importance in addition to mystery? This can
be a original question that delivered all the
world religions. Death is the most important
issue of all time, according to the eminent
psychologist Robert Lipton.

Which leads me to the right now. Right now we
grieve in considerably different (and more
public) approaches compared to events of yore,
because of the Internet in addition to social
media systems similar to Twitter and facebook. My
local friends and colleagues at Mylestoned,
within Boston, talk to this evolution in the most
up-to-date edition of their Digital AfterDeath
Digest. Mylestoned is a soon to launch free
mobile app that can help you sustain purposeful
bonds with deceased loved ones in a safe, simple
and easy supportive environment. Its a dedicated
location for sharing moments, photographs,
stories and other micro actives privately among
loved ones or directly with all the anonymous
Mylestoned Grief Guide community. If youd like
to read further, have a look at my latestAsk the
Lama blog post. Life is short lived as well as
tenuous no one lives permanently. Nevertheless
we have usually attempted to create continuous
bonds and also enduring contacts, even beyond
death. This really is nothing new now on account
of tools such as Mylestoned we've got fresh
opportunities, beyond whether we wish to be
buried or even cremated and have a stone tablet
using a short epitaph engraved on it for our
family members to go to within a bricks and
mortar graveyard. Most of these new as well as
innovative, user-friendly tools offer us an
opportunity to gain access to these long-lasting
thoughts in addition to purposeful link through
our selected memory points, stories, and
pictures, even simply for a moment whenever you
want during the day, let alone on special times
for instance the anniversary of a death or any
other significant event.

This can help us maintain and even further deepen
our meaningful connections with people we love
and have known. For love is bigger compared to
death, in addition to endures thru our continuing
ties along with most significant
connections. The Buddha himself declared the
greatest meditation has been the actual
contemplation of impermanence, death and
mortality. Maintaining this particular reality
inside the forefront of consciousness drastically
enables us to loosen our grip on fleeting things
as well become more centered and also sturdy,
when we develop the penetrating wisdom which
acknowledges and understand lifes ebbs in
addition to flows. Therefore I've learned to
extremely value along with focus on life now, in
all its styles, as well as reduce, breathe with
it and savor it. I aim not to postpone saying I
love you or perhaps reaching out to repair frayed
connections and also, opening my heart wide,
make every single encounter and moment
significant, since nobody and also nothing
endures permanently For additional information
